We understand that there will be many questions, changes, emotions and feelings that are going to be part of this process.

MND is a life-changing illness and we are dedicated to making each change as smooth as possible. Our help is available for everyone, whether you are living with MND or close to someone who has been diagnosed.

Depending on your symptoms and how the disease develops, you and your family will need different levels of support at different times. Beyond the physical challenges, it can often be the partners and family members who struggle dealing with the effects of MND the most.

Understandably this may feel complex and overwhelming on top of the diagnosis but there is lots of information to guide you through this.

Alternatively, the West Sussex South Branch, and more particularly our trained Association Visitors can provide you with personal guidance and advice for your circumstances – and can be a useful bridge into navigating the range of services available.

Lots of our Branch members also find it useful to meet with others experiencing MND to share experiences and advice. The Branch meeting and socials may be a good way for you to do this.
